Kaplan Hall, Great Room (NBG)
11 a.m.

Ran'd Shine -- The New Face of Magic!

Ran'd considers magic as much more than just entertainment. He wants to expand your mind . . . get you to look at things from a different angle . . . and explore a bit of what the term "diversity" truly means. (DYK that the first American born magician was Black?)

That's why he has traveled extensively to Africa to mix magic with exploring his roots. The lessons he learned there are shouting to be shared. You will learn and come away a better person; but, don't get the wrong idea -- the show is also wildly entertaining, excitingly original, andPG clean.

President Obama thought enough of Ran'd to ask him to perform at the military's prestigious "Salute to Heroes Inaugural Banquet and Ball!" Come discover for yourself, the "New Face of Magic!"
